The action of the Australian A-League will continue this Friday with the match between the undisputed leaders, Sydney FC and one of the teams from the bottom of the table, Melbourne Victory. The latter will try to use the local factor to try to stop the scoring machine Sydney has become this season.
Melbourne have a record of 4 victories, 3 draws and 7 losses, with 15 points in 14 games. Also, they have an average of 1.21 goals scored per match, while they receive 1.36 goals per match, with a -2 goal difference. They are not a team that scores many goals, but their defense is decent. In their stadium, they have a record of 2W – 3D – 2L, and they got a clean sheet in their last 4 games (3 of them playing at home).
On the other hand, Sydney keep their superb form. They have a streak of 10 games undefeated and 3 victories in their last 3 matches. Their total record is 11 victories, 1 draw and only 1 defeat at the beginning of the season. Sydney score 2.31 goals per match and concede 1.0 goal per match, with a goal difference of +17. They have currently the best attack and the 2nd best defense of the tournament. Actually, they have scored more than once in 11 out of 13 games. The visiting team have the topscorer Adam Le Fondre (13 goals) and the dangerous playmaker Kosta Barbarouses, (6 goals, 5 assists) as their offensive spark. Sydney have an away record of 4W – 1D – 1L.
If we look at the head-to-head record between these teams, we can see that Melbourne have won 2 out of the last 5 games, but Sydney took the lead in the last 3. Also, in all these matches, there have been 3 or more goals.
This time, I strongly believe Sydney will win this match, but it won’t be as easy as it seems. So, my strategy will be to place my pick on the Asian Handicap market of -0.25, which provides an excellent odd of 1.98 for this outcome.
